Parking Info

Residents of The QUAD and University Village Apartments

A Valid CSUSM parking permit must be properly displayed at all times while parking on campus.  There is NO GRACE PERIOD.

Fall 2017 parking permits are on sale. Ensure you have your license plate and vehicle information when you make your purchase. You will not be able to complete the permit purchase without it.

Permits may be purchased online and mailed out to avoid standing in long lines at the start of the semester.  For any Semester or Academic Year permit purchased online, you will be able to print out a temporary permit that is valid for 2 weeks to use until you receive your permit in the mail.
